Art exhibit to support Gallegos campaign
“Art and Politics Do Mix”
Noted watercolorist Alan Sanborn is showing his support for the re-election of District Attorney Paul Gallegos by staging his latest art exhibit in conjunction with and immediately following Gallegos’ campaign kickoff rally on Thursday, September 16th.
Both the district attorney’s campaign launch at 5:30 p.m.and the artist’s reception for Sanborn’s showing of original paintings starting at 6 p.m. will take place at the 321 Gallegos Gallery at 321 Third St. in Old Town Eureka. Refreshments will be served.
The pairing of the artist and the attorney makes sense to both of them since Sanborn’s work celebrates the very beauty and outdoor life of Humboldt County that first attracted Gallegos and his family to settle here. As district attorney, Gallegos recently won important protections for
seniors in the Skilled Healthcare Group lawsuit, which will now require the out-of-town corporate owners of Humboldt County facilities Granada, Seaview, Pacific and Eureka Healthcare and Rehab, and St. Luke Healthcare Center, to meet the state’s required minimum nurse-to-patient ratio.
To find out more about Gallegos, or to donate or volunteer, go to www.votepaul.org or call 442.9600. Sanborn’s pastoral watercolors are featured locally in many venues, as well as on-line at www.alansanbornart.com. His exhibit will run through November 2nd.
